Colbert Mocks Cam Newton for Losing Dannon Endorsement: ‘Funny Seeing a Male Talk About Yogurt’

Stephen Colbert took some shots at Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton for his belittling remarks towards a female reporter during a press conference.

When the reporter asked about “routes,” Newton laughed and said “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes.”

“Could he be more patronizing and insulting?” Colbert reacted. “That a woman wouldn’t know about routes and truck sticking? And quick follow-up; what are those things?”

The Late Show host then mentioned how in the wake of the controversy, Dannon had dropped Newton as a spokesman.

“It’s too bad,” Colbert smirked. “It was funny seeing a male talk about yogurt.”

Newton has since apologized for his remarks, calling them “degrading and disrespectful to women.”
